Start with an "easy" cichlid. They might not be colorful but you work your way up to colorful once you've gained some experience and understand their habits and ways. The convict wasn't a bad idea.....

Don't worry about them moving nests. They will do it. It's not a bad thing, it's just an instinct to find a better location to protect their young/eggs. Other cichlids do it too. I've seen my...

I've seen them a couple of years ago on Aquabid. They're illegal in California. Check your states first before you make that jump into acquiring them. They are pretty awesome looking fish though.

They rarely if ever went into any of the rocks/cave formations. They usually stuck around the plants more often than not. There's possibility too that it could be because they're more comfortable and...

So far it sounds like a good plan.
For the 55, I'd go with the congo tetras. They are visually a bit more interesting to look at.

The 29 sounds good. Although personally, like what you did with...
